Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for the Week ending 11th February 2012.

Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for the Week ending 11th February 2012.

The catches were quite slow this week again but the quality of spring salmon remained high with salmon caught up to 18 pounds in weight. There has been far less Baggots and Rawners this year and a good number of Kelts which has meant a good spawning season.

Good conditions prevailed for the week. Success was limited but the quality was again exceptional with more multi sea winter salmon landed. The river temperature was around 39F or 4C due to colder weather and this probably slowed the salmon down and favoured the lower river. However despite this salmon were caught in the middle and Upper river with others caught and not registered meaning a few are still running through and progressing upstream which encourages everyone.

18 salmon were reported last week with the best salmon of 18 pounds being landed on the Murthly beat. Spring salmon were landed throughout the system from the Lower river to the Upper river including the first spring salmon from the Portnacraig beat at Pitlochry caught by Adam Joseph fly fishing and weighing 13 ½ pounds. Also salmon were reported from Edradynate, Upper Farleyer and Dalguise from the Upper area.
David McPherson landed the Dalguise beats first salmon of the season weighing 14 pounds from the “ Casting Platform” on a Toby Salmo. Spring salmon continue to be caught at Islamouth as they temporarily hesitate at the mouth of the Isla. Amongst the springers caught there,
Tom Borthwick landed a 16 pounds beauty harling on Saturday. Taymount and Stobhall also have ticked away consistently registering catches. Perth and District angler John Cook having success on Stobhall and
Edward McLellan landing a 17 pounds beauty from the Linn Pool on Taymount.

Celebrate a Tay spring salmon with a Dalmore Tay Dram and contribute to the future of this mighty river as a percentage of the proceeds go to projects to improve the river.

Many thanks for all the pictures everyone sent me of opening week spring salmon and thanks to all who have sent me their individual fishing experiences over the last season on the river. I would be most grateful if you to do the same this season by emailing to be included in this report.
